Remote SIMS course on Preparing for a New School Year – Secondary

Preparing for a New School Year

Our remote course on Preparing for a New School Year in SIMS ensures we can continue to provide training to schools during this period of social isolation.

To help with this, we have been breaking down our longstanding SIMS Training Courses into smaller sessions that can be delivered remotely.

This course is for staff who are responsible for preparing for the new school year.

We have created a page on our website providing more details, and the training will be delivered over Microsoft Teams or a similar solution and allows time for you to ask questions.

About Preparing for a New School Year

Learn how to configure SIMS for the new school year including setting up the new pastoral structure and dealing with admissions. Before the new school year commences, the pastoral process must be completed in SIMS.
